Overview

Just look closely-and creative doors will open! This second book in the successful FOCUS series unlocks a doorway to the imagination, with a collection of approximately 250 photographs of passages of all kinds, captured by amateur photographers.

Doors are rich in meaning: they literally allow us to move from one place to the other, but also symbolize temptation, invitation, separation, and mystery. For these reasons, as well as their physical beauty, photographers have found them irresistible. From a graffiti-scrawled urban door and an aged barn door to an elegant glass door glowing with dappled light and a curious circular door set into an ivy-covered rock wall, these images redefine the ordinary…and shine a new light on the world.

    Glorious Portals, Doorways, Entrances and Passages

    It has taken me too long to get to this review because I get the lost in the pages of this little gem every time I open it. I've always "had a thing" about portals and doorways. They have such an allegorical place in my heart...sort of like circles which I have adopted as my personal 'signature'.

    This is a particularly lovely small book of photographs - a collection of the most wonderful portals and doorways in all of their mysterious and fanciful guises. The weather is too wet and dark to facilitate great photos but I have added a few that may give you an idea of what's on the pages of this delightful little tome.

    As always Lark Books does an exceptional job with photography and design. From the 'carved' portal on the cover to the last page of photographs - this book is a great diversion for a gray, cold day. If pathways, portals & doorways intrigue you, as they do me, this book is most definitely for you!
